Discover our Preston Campus

Campus Tours

Our student-led Campus Tours and Campus Tour Extra are an ideal way to get a feel for our Preston Campus – if you can’t get to an Open Day, or just fancy a more informal look around.

Our students will show you around our compact city campus, from our fantastic student social spaces to state-of-the-art buildings including our purpose-built on campus sports centre or one of our accommodation flats.

They’re the perfect opportunity to get more of a sense of UCLan, and you can get answers to all the questions you really want to ask from our current students.

During Clearing Campus Tour Extra will be running every Wednesday in July and August, giving you the chance to tailor your visit for the course you are interested in.

You will get the chance to speak with support staff from Finance, Admissions and Accommodation as well as being able to speak to an academic from your chosen course area and see our fantastic campus.

Please note booking is essential, bookings close midday Friday before the visit date so that we can connect you with the right course tutor.  In the event that your specific course tutor is not available you will be offered the next nearest date available. We advise that you await final confirmation before making travel bookings.

For the Clearing Campus Tour Extra Events there are two check-in options, 1.30pm until around 4.00pm OR 3.30pm until to around 6pm.
